Title (EN) SWITCH ASSEMBLIES
(FR) ENSEMBLE COMMUTATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A switch assembly, which is particularly suitable for use in a fruit machine, comprises a front part (50) to be located by an outer face of a glass panel (52) and a rear part (54) to be located by an inner face of the glass panel (52), with the front and rear parts of the switch assembly being operably connected by magnetic means allowing the glass panel (52) to extend continuously therebetween, thereby avoiding the need to form a hole in the glass panel (52), and with the front part (50) including two magnets (66) which are arranged with their poles facing in opposite directions perpendicularly to the length of a read switch (56) carried by the rear part (54) and which are displaced non-linearly with respect to the reed switch (56) as the front part (50) is rocked about a pivot (62).
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un ensemble commutateur convenant particulièrement à une utilisation dans une machine à sous. Cet ensemble comporte une partie avant (50) destinée à être fixée sur une surface externe d'une plaque de verre (52), et une partie arrière (54) destinée à être fixée sur une surface interne de la plaque de verre (52), ces parties avant et arrière de l'ensemble commutateur étant connectées de manière fonctionnelle par la voie magnétique ce qui permet à la plaque de verre de s'étendre en continu entre ces deux parties et donc évite la nécessité de former un trou dans ladite plaque (52). La partie avant (50) comporte deux aimants (66) conçus pour que leurs pôles soient orientés dans des sens opposés et perpendiculairement à la longueur d'un commutateur à tiges (56) situé dans la partie arrière (54). Ces aimants sont déplacés de manière non linéaire par rapport au commutateur à lames (56) étant donné que la partie avant (50) est fixée sur un pivot (62).
